Heh, if the rules are similar to the rules here (Don't criticize mods, which is a rule with which I can agree for numerous reasons), then the OP might really risk getting banned.
An alternative might be to /msg a mod there, and see if one will discuss it with you.
That being said, I'm with Dan that such a question seems reasonable. You can always ask here.
Also, *that* being said, it may well be that there's a history that makes it a more reasonable requirement than it seems to we who haven't been there.
